Here we are in 2021, and it’s time to see out the cheapest phones ranging KES. 10,000. In fact with this rising, it means I will be able to have another two such lists very soon for the 20k to 30k segment, and for the 30k to 40k segment. Subscribe, or follow on social media so you don’t miss those.
I also know there are new phones coming very soon, given 2021 is here. But I don’t believe any of the upcoming launches will affect this list that much. Maybe a replacement TECNO, Infinix, and Nokia phone, but nothing too wild. So if you’re looking to upgrade, or buy a replacement phone within this budget segment, just choose it.
And here are my top picks for the best quality cheap phones to shop for if you’ve got a budget ranging from KES. 10,000.
1. Tecno Pop 4 – KES. 9,500

Fabricated on TSMC’s 12 nm process, the chip incorporates eight Cortex-A53 cores operating at up to 2 GHz. This chip supports up to 6 GiB of dual-channel LPDDR4X-3200 memory.
